I'm one of the 1000 Pugs!

In case you hadn't heard, 1000 Pugs is a fundraising vehicle for pug rescues. The brainchild of Puglet's mom, it's a series of pug-only photo shoots that will become a book.

There is a "Tour" of photo shoots, and one of the stops is in Dallas/Fort Worth. The first stop, actually. Mom and Suki's mom decided they just HAD to be part of the 1000, so after phone calls, emails and texts, the sign up coordination was complete. Suki's mom can't sign up during work hours, so my mom got all the info to sign us all up together. Last Friday she was all set to go, but the internet foiled that plan.

At first, she was only going to bring me, but after talking to Suki's mom and listening to her heart, she decided to bring Arnie, too. Which is fitting, since Arnie was one of the first subjects on Daily Puglet, a long time ago.

The sign up was changed to yesterday, and more info about photo shoot locations. So MORE phone calls and more planning went on, and the plan was in place. One of the locations for the shoot was a botanical garden. Mom loves botanical gardens, but not as much as Suki does.

In fact, when we went to visit her, we took a trip to the garden she loves so much. We even became pug soup there!


The day of the sign up, mom was ready. At a few minutes after the "time" she logged on, and all the slots for the gardens were full! On to plan B, and quick, quick, she signed us up. And we got in - ALL of us. 

Now, we just have to practice our posing skills and wait for the big day. Suki and her mom will stay with us that weekend, so more pug fun will be had by all.


  1. Gracie, you are one lucky pug to be part of 1000 pugs along with Arnie and Suki too!! We sure wish we could be too but the tour is not coming close to Idaho. We are going to tell our mom to pledge some money on the kickstarter sight to help make sure everything is awesome for the pugs that do get to be one of 1000 !!!!!

  2. Hi Gracie! I'm so happy that you made it in and will get to share the experience with Suki! And thank goodness Arnie will be there too! I know Suki would be so disappointed if he didn't get to model with her. Young love... Hehee! My mom got me in the hot dog and brat day in Milwaukee! Yum!

  3. I am so glad you guys made it in Gracie! Your going to have a great time.

  4. Payton - you are sooo lucky to be gettin' brats!

  5. We are so jealous. 1000 Pugs isn't coming anywhere near us so we can't participate. But we'll get a t shirt!

  6. Hi Gracie!

    Mom can't stop dancing around, we both are so excited! Especially since I get to see you all AND Arnie!


  7. Gracie,
